Can a Child Be Wicked?

Posted by Rabbi Goldie Milgram |

The seder liturgy of the Four Sons has always disturbed me for reasons more than gender bias, also because of the dismissive labeling and assumptions about children.

Blessings for a sweet and meaningful Passover!

To fly, in the balanced way to which Jewish tradition would have us aspire, we need the other wing - ahava, love.
